Our story began right here in the Salinas Valley, affectionately called America’s Salad Bowl, when Bruce Taylor saw an opportunity to bring bagged salads and fresh produce items to the foodservice consumer.
In 1994, Bruce and several partners founded Taylor Fresh Foods. A new company with a new vision was born- to be North America’s favorite maker of salads & healthy fresh foods.
We are a family owned company headquartered in Salinas, California with seven strategically located regional foodservice processing facilities across the country and in Mexico.
Taylor Fresh Foods has a career opportunity available for a talented and motivated individual to join our Quality Management team. A minimum of five years’ experience successfully managing produce agricultural food safety and quality programs is required.
The GAP Consultant/Auditor will partner with growers, harvesters, coolers and packers to ensure Taylor’s high food safety standards are continually met. This includes training growers and harvesters on Good Agricultural and Harvesting Practices; following up with onsite audits of growers and ranches; ensuring compliance with our pre-harvest microbiological testing programs; and building effective working relationships with our supplier partners. The GAP Consultant/Auditor will work with Program Managers at Taylor Farms to share best practices and discoveries.
The right person for this position loves to work outdoors in agricultural settings, works well remotely and with minimal supervision, is a self-starter, has a thorough knowledge of Good Agricultural and Harvesting Practices in fresh produce (including risk factors and mitigation), and experience writing audit reports and communicating audit findings. Qualified individuals will enjoy working in our fast paced environment and have the ability to work and communicate well with others. This position will require approximately 90% travel, often with little advance notice to meet our business needs.
We offer a full product line of fresh-cut, value-added vegetables. From our most basic salads to our signature specialty blends, we at Taylor Farms pride ourselves in maintaining our commitment to quality in all of our products.
We have a dedicated team of professionals working round the clock to ensure that our entire product line is achieving and performing the way we have come to expect. Try us and see for yourself!
